#10 Denver men’s lacrosse (8-4, 3-1) put away a sloppy Providence team on Senior Night at Peter Barton Stadium, 13-6. The Friars lost track of the ball 12 times and were forced into turnovers seven more times on a brisk Rocky Mountain evening. The Pioneers reeled in seven more ground balls than Providence, creating extra possessions and stalling offensive opportunities for the visitors who appeared to still be operating in a different time zone. In a week that featured Matt Brown as DU’s future head coach, it was Coach Bill Tierney’s defense that turned up the heat in the first half – holding the visitors to only two goals. Not to be outdone, the Pioneers scored a host of seven straight goals in Brown’s offense. The Denver ‘D’ capped the night with a length-of-the-field goal by defender Jimmy Freehill, 13-6.

#3 Denver Women’s Lacrosse (15-0, 4-0) continued their historic season with a sweep. The Pio’s took down the Stanford Cardinal Thursday night at Peter Barton Stadium and Sunday morning trounced Xavier on the road to remain unblemished in BIG EAST play.
While first impressions may indicate Denver is driven by a powerful offense (which it is), it is the stingy defense that allows long scoring runs while shutting down opponents. Denver is second in the nation in caused turnovers (12.62 pg), second in the nation in draw control percentage (,625), seventh on save percentage (.510), and number one in scoring defense (5.92). It is hard to win in lacrosse without the ball. Continue reading Denver Women’s Lacrosse on a Tear, Punish Stanford and Xavier
It was only fitting that on Bill Tierney Day, Denver men’s lacrosse (5-4, 1-1) defense rose to the special occasion. While Tierney is the head coach, he focuses on the defensive end of the field. #17/19 DU’s smothering defense, a Tierney staple, held the No. 11/9 Villanova Wildcats to two goals in the first half. Tierney’s team shut out Villanova from 4:52 of the first period until 3:44 remained in the third period while reeling off nine goals in a row. Game, set and match as Denver coasted to the BIG EAST win. Continue reading Denver Defense Stifles Villanova 12-6 on Bill Tierney Day

It was the 1974 school year. The time of President Nixon’s resignation, the Middle East oil embargo, and a Swedish rock group called ABBA was all the rage in Europe. That same school year, four female lacrosse players joined the DU men’s lacrosse ‘B’ team, playing against Air Force in Colorado Springs to open the season. The final score, an 18-1 AFA drubbing of Denver, was the least important event that day, as players from both teams dealt with a new trend that was sweeping the nation – women playing college sports. Continue reading Nearly 50 Years Ago, Women Took the Field With DU Men’s Lacrosse Team

It felt like 2016 again and DU men’s lacrosse (4-3) let the good times roll. Peter Barton Stadium was packed, lacrosse alumni lined the balcony of the Cable Center and Denver played with skill and speed, demolishing Ohio State, 17-12. A team many insiders doubted at the start of the season has now defeated #15 Ohio State, #12 North Carolina and came up just a late goal short on the road against #4 Duke. Bill Tierney’s final edition may have more surprises in store before the end of this season. Continue reading Epic Weekend for Denver Lacrosse Teams
